Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire fulltime, results-oriented Microsoft certified consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals with CISSP or equivalent security certification; and high-end system design experts with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, high availability, workplace recovery, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to join Progent's team of helpdesk service specialists and remote support experts. In addition, Progent is looking for experienced administrators able to perform effectively in our high-growth, virtual office culture.

By supporting a team of skilled and dedicated consultants, delivering world-class client care, and following a competitive results-based pricing structure, Progent has managed to expand our client base dramatically while delivering professional support to numerous companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a common knowledge database, and a group strategy for problem solving have allowed Progent to retain a skilled staff and a loyal customer list.

If you are a network professional with troubleshooting expertise, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's customers can expand your knowledge through cooperation with our staff of highly team-oriented, expert consultants. Our commitment to providing network consulting and computer support to small and midsize companies will give you the chance to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the growth of exciting companies.

We are looking for consultants who can show recognized certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco professionals, show us your CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, CISA, Certified Information Security Manager, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not having one. If you know your field, then most of those certifications should be no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers deserve to see certifications. We will market your talents, but you must provide a baseline of credentials for Progent to market. If you happen to be strongly against the idea of certifications, we can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are probably not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Consultants

Progent's productive atmosphere will make you a more capable professional by improving your information technology skills and boosting the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this promise by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications infrastructure, using specialized software utilities to deliver the highest level of support, and by optimizing proven business models for attracting and keeping clients.

The most important factor that differentiates Progent from typical consulting firms is the quality of our support professionals. Out of the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with Progent, we have recruited top talent across a broad range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco switches, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective experience of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of our team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work properly. We will exploit information technology to an extraordinary degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure allows effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with other Progent team members — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose revenue because of regular drives to a physical office, and any driving you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not Progent's. The best part is that most of our consulting services can be performed off-site, representing maximum productivity for billable time. In fact, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's business structure is set up for reacting quickly and effectively to customer needs via knowledge exchange and collaborative problem solving. Although our engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is unified, client issues and resolutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for easy retrieval, current engineer schedules are broadcast to streamline team projects and enable problem escalation, and customer approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of connection through monthly team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of Progent's team is situated throughout California, however we are attracting a quickly growing group of network experts throughout America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the efficiency of conventional company models. We complete the deal by offering a full benefit program to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their families.

Just as we have awesome consulting professionals, our sales and operations groups live up to the excellence that characterizes Progent. These high-performance contributors to our success are helping us to identify and land the scores of new clients we are now acquiring each month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical proficiency is a cornerstone for growth with Progent. A job in consulting will drive you to learn more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes professional support exciting. Clients choose consulting firms to perform the “hard stuff.” Creative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly common for computer professionals in ordinary corporate jobs. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful folks, both by building close client relationships and by working in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-oriented company heart and soul. If you don’t have excellent people skills or enjoy working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to us about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
